I currently have a total of 19 stocks in my portfolio, and during November a stunning 12 of them paid out dividends. No wonder November is by far my best month this year, beating my previous record with nearly 100%!
My portfolio is weighted against Norwegian stocks, and it's not that common for them to pay out quarterly dividends. Some do, others do semi-annually, but the vast majority pays an annual dividend during May/June.
So the fact that 12 of my 19 stocks paid out dividends this month if quite astonishing. But one should not that the largest dividend received this month is an extra-ordinary dividend from Orkla (ORK) due to their sale of SAPA earlier this year.
The table below lists all the dividends received this month, which amounts to a record high of $635.86.

And as I wrote about earlier this month, I sold CBL. Some of the cash generated from this I spent on Black Friday. As Stockles wrote, my broker offered free trading on US Stocks that day, and I was ready for some more O. So $6 saved on broker fee!
The graph below illustrates my dividend income so far this year, with November clearly sticking out, and bringing the total dividends received in 2017 to $2,628. December is looking quite slow, so I do not expect to reach the $3,000 bar this year.
